Claude Lorrain--the painter as draftsman : drawings from the British Museum by Richard Rand( Book )

19 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great French artist Claude Lorrain (1600-1682) - for whom drawing was an integral part of the artistic process - spent most of his career in Italy, where he documented the beauty of the landscape and the splendor of classical ruins. This richly illustrated book examines the wide-ranging role the medium played throughout Claude's career. The book presents some of Claude's most remarkable drawings, representing all aspects of his style and subject matter - from informal outdoor sketches of trees, rivers, and ruins to formal presentation drawings and elaborate compositional designs for paintings, many of which have never before been reproduced in color. A detailed and scholarly essay places them within the social and cultural contexts of their time and includes comparative illustrations of paintings and etchings to situate them within the artist's oeuvre. A selection of works from the Liber Veritatis (Book of Truth), a portfolio of highly finished drawings that the artist created to document his own painted compositions, is also included

German printmaking in the age of Goethe by Antony Griffiths( Book )

19 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goethe's lifetime (1749-1832) was a period of extraordinary importance in the history of German printmaking. From a style which had been strongly derivative of French and Dutch prototypes, German printmakers evolved a distinctive approach of their own. Etching remained the principal vehicle of the period but the invention of lithography introduced another medium which was explored with great subtlety by German artists. Over 200 works by nearly 70 artists are described in this illustrated catalogue, showing the great richness and diversity of production and examining the way in which patronage and the print market operated at the time
Disasters of war : Callot, Goya, Dix by Jacques Callot( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Disasters of War examines three great series of war etchings: Jacques Callot's Miseries of War, Goya's The Disasters of War and Otto Dix's War. Although the etchings were created in different centuries, and are stylistically unalike, they are links in a chain: Callot's influence on Goya is reflected in the latter's choice of title (a deliberate echo) and Dix shows his debt to Goya by quoting from him directly in one image. These prints are cornerstones of a vital tradition in European war art, an art of realism and protest." "Each series is the subject of an authoritative essay, placing it in its historical context."--BOOK JACKET

The print before photography : an introduction to European printmaking, 1550-1820 by Antony Griffiths( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark publication that catalogues the history and development of the printed image Gutenberg's invention of moveable type made it possible to print letters. But images could only be printed using two other technologies that were developed alongside letterpress. One depended on wooden blocks which were cut and printed in relief, the other on copper plates into which lines were cut by engraving or etching and were printed on a rolling press. Copper-plate printmaking developed into a huge business employing thousands of people, and dominated image production for nearly four centuries across the whole of Europe. Its processes remained very stable, and a man of 1500 could have walked into a printing shop of 1800 and understood what was going on. During the nineteenth century this world was displaced by new technologies, of which photography was by far the most important
Prints for books : book illustration in France, 1760-1800 by Antony Griffiths( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second half of the eighteenth century in France was one of the great ages of book illustration, which saw the meeting of top-quality engraving, fine printing and high bibliophily. The chapters of this book explore the interrelationship of these elements. The vogue began with a public demand that new poems, plays and novels should be illustrated with high-quality prints, and authors had to respond. The profits to be made tempted engravers, draughtsmen and a new breed of art entrepreneur to undertake projects of their own. In the 1780s fashion shifted to a passionate interest in book collecting and fine printing, and how the business responded to the new situation, and to the effects of the Revolution in the 1790s, is explored in this new book."
